Fam­ily fun on Feb. 20

Wiarton Echo - - NEWS - Marg Fletcher

It’s nice to know that we will have an early spring ac­cord­ing to our Wiar­ton Wil­lie. I can hardly wait for that to come along. Al­though ac­cord­ing to the weather gal I watch on the Lon­don sta­tion, it will be some time be­fore the snow de­cides to go away.

Due to the freez­ing rain pre­dic­tion last Mon­day, which did show up around noon hour or so on Tues­day, the school buses were can­celled on the Mon­day and the school chil­dren all had a hol­i­day on Tues­day.

Happy Birth­day wishes to Gate­way Haven res­i­dent Heinz Spill­ner, Feb. 16. Be­lated Birth­day wishes to Gate­way Haven res­i­dents Betty on Feb. 11 and Dawn on Feb. 12. Happy 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary wishes to Glen and Florence Miller on Feb. 15. May you all have a happy and healthy year to come.

Fam­ily Day in On­tario is Feb. 20. There will be ac­tiv­i­ties here in Wiar­ton and in Sauble Beach. The Ac­tiv­i­ties may in­clude an archery demon­stra­tion and fish hatch­ery tour at the Bruce Penin­sula Sport­men’s As­so­ci­a­tion, bil­liards at Lloyd’s Smoke Shop, horse drawn hay/sleigh ride in Blue­wa­ter Park, skat­ing at the Wiar­ton arena, snow­shoe­ing and ski­ing on Sauble cross coun­try ski trails and a spaghetti din­ner at The Meet­ing Place/Pro­peller Club in Wiar­ton.

I know that Feb­ru­ary has just be­gun but there are a few dates in March of note. Day­light Sav­ing Time be­gins on March 12, March break starts on March 13 to March 17 and the Spring Equinox is on March 20.

Please note – Feb. 20 is blue box pickup in Albe­marle.

Al­though it is a bit early to talk about gar­den­ing this is some­thing to think about while the snow con­tin­ues to fall. Wiar­ton Com­mu­nity Gar­dens are lo­cated at Gate­way Haven County of Bruce Long Term Care (ac­cess on Mary Street). So if you en­joy gar­den­ing and grow­ing your own veg­eta­bles but don’t have room for a gar­den where you live, you can con­tact the recre­ation pro­gram­mer at (519) 534-1400 ex­ten­sion 132 and find out what it costs to par­tic­pate.

Take care ev­ery­one, have a won­der­ful week to come even if you have to shovel more snow and once again please drive care­fully.
